1884-CC GSA Morgan Silver Dollar - Uncirculated Carson City DollarGeorge T. Morgan’s classic design makes the Morgan Dollar highly desirable around the world. The 1884-CC Morgan Dollar has a mintage of 1,136,000 coins, adding collectible appeal to the iconic design and Silver content. The item comes in its original GSA case with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Please note: The coin and its case have been kept in a climate controlled bank safety deposit box for 30+ years.I inherited this coin and the COA begins with the number "82", even though the coin is from 1884. My father was the original owner of the coin. Given the number of years from the time of purchase, we do not know why the certificates are numbered this way. Coin Highlights:Contains: .7734 oz of Silver.This issue comes in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Obverse: Shows Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap with the word "Liberty" on her hair band, bordered by "E Pluribus Unum," the date of issue and thirteen small stars representing the original colonies.Reverse: Features a bald eagle clutching an olive branch and a bundle of arrows, surrounded by "United States of America," "One Dollar," and "In God We Trust." Features the Carson City Mint's "CC" mint mark. The Morgan dollar was a US dollar coin minted from 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921. It was the first standard silver dollar minted since production of the previous design, the Seated Liberty dollar, ceased due to the passage of the Coinage Act of 1873, which also ended the free coining of silver. In 1898, Congress approved a bill that required all remaining bullion purchased under the Sherman Silver Purchase Act to be coined into silver dollars. When those silver reserves were depleted in 1904, the Mint ceased to strike the Morgan dollar. The Pittman Act, passed in 1918, authorized the melting and recoining of millions of silver dollars. Pursuant to the act, Morgan dollars resumed mintage for one year in 1921. The design was replaced by the Peace dollar later the same year. In the early 1960s, a large quantity of unissued Morgan dollars was discovered in the Treasury vaults, including issues once thought rare. Individuals began purchasing large quantities of the pieces at face value, and eventually the Treasury ceased exchanging silver certificates for silver coin. The dollars were produced every year between 1878 and 1904 at a total of 4 different mints. Each mint, with the exception of Philadelphia, has its own mint mark. Only about 2% of all Morgan silver dollars were struck at the short-lived frontier mint in Carson City, Nevada. A relatively small facility, it could not produce coins in the same quantities as other, larger mints. Just over 1.1 million 1884-CC Morgan silver dollars were struck.
